Filmmakers Simon and Zeke Hawkins are no strangers to film festivals, having made the rounds with their award-winning short films in the past. We Gotta Get Out of This Place, however, is their first feature film. And not just any ol' feature film, but a tense, edge-of-you-seat, nouveau noir, crime thriller set in Texas, with a nod to pulp crime master Jim Thompson. Whoa, right?
Yesterday, the poster was released and naturally, it's not just an ol' poster. Nope, it's a hand-painted by Eisner Award winning artist Sean Phillips (yeah, THAT Sean Phillips). Since we know you're beyond excited for We Gotta Get Out of This Place by now, the screening times are listed below. You can also learn more about the film on its IMDb page and find even more amazing films from the Vanguard Programme on the Festival website.
